Statistics for Bioinformatics
Statistics for Bioinformatics Set
Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) has transformed the field of Biology. In the last ten years, the development of new genome sequencing technologies has made DNA sequencing, RNA-seq and high-throughput screening crucial research tools in areas like agriculture, medicine and the food industry.
The greatest challenge now lies in finding efficient and effective ways to manage the large-scale data bei...
Biostatistics and Computer-based Analysis of Health Data using Stata
Biostatistics and Health Science Set
This volume of the Biostatistics and Health Sciences Set focuses on statistics applied to clinical research. The use Stata for data management and statistical modeling is illustrated using various examples. Many aspects of data processing and statistical analysis of cross-sectional and experimental medical data are covered, including regression models commonly found in medical statistics. This pr...
Biostatistics and Computer-based Analysis of Health Data using R
Biostatistics and Health Science Set
This volume of the Biostatistics and Health Sciences Set focuses on statistics applied to clinical research, epidemiology, economics, sociology of health and medical biology.
Medical statistics are a valuable scientific resource for practitioners who want to calculate the normal value of a biological size, assess the reliability of a review or estimate the risk of complication of a medical condit...
Brain–Computer Interfaces 1
Foundations and Methods
Brain–computer interfaces (BCI) are devices which measure brain activity and translate it into messages or commands, thereby opening up many investigation and application possibilities.
This book provides keys for understanding and designing these multi-disciplinary interfaces, which require many fields of expertise such as neuroscience, statistics, informatics and psychology.
This first volume,...
Live Cell Assays
From Research to Health and Regulatory Applications
Cell assays include all methods of measurements on living cells. Confined for a long time to research laboratories, these emerging methods have, in recent years, found industrial applications that are increasingly varied and, from now on, regulatory.
Based on the recent explosion of knowledge in cell biology, the measurement of living cells represents a new class of industry-oriented research tes...
Theory, Advances and Technical Applications
This book presents e-Health, from its implementation at the physical level to the networks of communication between the different systems and sensors involved, as well as the most relevant solutions at the application layer.
The authors focus on ICT technologies and solutions for health management and healthcare applications.
Part 1 presents electronic health records as we know them. By presenti...
Multi-modality Cardiac Imaging
Processing and Analysis
This book presents current and emerging methods developed for the processing and analysis of multi-modality cardiac images from state-of-the-art imaging systems, especially cardiac ultrasound imaging, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and X-ray computed tomography (CT). The availability of multi-dimensional images (2D, 2D+t, 3D, 3D+t, etc.) allows for the quantitative assessment of the heart's shap...
Kinematic Analysis of Human Movement
FOCUS Series in Bioengineering and Health Science
Understanding human motion has, for a long time, involved a multidisciplinary approach encompassing many scientific disciplines: biomechanics, functional anatomy, physiology and neuroscience, among others. Although these different perspectives are all important in order to completely understand motion, it is not realistic to try to cover all these aspects at the same time. This book deliberately f...
This book provides an overview of the field of biomaterials from its origins to the state of the art today. The various chapters attempt to make the world of biomaterials understandable to the reader.
It begins with the history of biomaterials and the birth of biomaterials science in the middle of the 20th Century, something which has enabled amazing progress, as well as the latest directions in...
Logical Modeling of Biological Systems
Systems Biology is the systematic study of the interactions between the components of a biological system and studies how these interactions give rise to the function and behavior of the living system. Through this, a life process is to be understood as a whole system rather than the collection of the parts considered separately. Systems Biology is therefore more than just an emerging field: it re...
CO2 Biofixation by Microalgae
Modeling, Estimation and Control
Due to the consequences of global warming and significant emissions of greenhouse gases, several avenues of research have been conducted to either reduce these emissions or to propose solutions to eliminate the pollutants. One of the most promising avenues of research is the use of microalgae for the biofixation of CO2. These micro-organisms can sequester CO2 through photosynthesis. In order to ob...
Biomechanics of the Musculoskeletal System
Modeling of Data Uncertainty and Knowledge
This book is a forerunner regarding data uncertainty and knowledge modeling in the biomechanics of the musculoskeletal system. It begins with the state of the art in related topics such as data uncertainty, knowledge modeling, and the biomechanics of the musculoskeletal system.
This is followed by the presentation of fundamental and conceptual aspects of data uncertainty modeling in biomechanics....
